‘Hemingway’ on Hemingway

Mark Liberman, writing at Language Log:

Several people have written to me about the so-called “Hemingway” app, which offers to give you detailed stylistic advice about your writing. One useful way to evaluate programs of this kind is to see what they do with good writing — and given this effort’s name, it makes sense to check out its opinion about the prose of Ernest Hemingway.
